Last week we bought you a clip of a goal from Lukas Podolski scoring against Ecuador after just nine seconds during an international friendly.

The Arsenal man earned plenty of plaudits for bagging what is now the second quickest international goal ever scored.

But frankly in comparison to FC Spartak's Enganamouit Gaelle stunner against FC Pozarevac we can't help but feel that Podolski got a few too many pats on the back for scoring after nine whole seconds - that's at least six seconds too many.

The Cameroonian not only scored a stunner from the the halfway line but did it straight from kick-off, with just three seconds passing between the start of the game and the ball hitting the net.

Inevitably that set the tone as Spartak went on to win the game 7-0, and wrap up the Women's Championship in the process.

Check out Gaelle's goal below, and ask the question; Podolski, who are ya?
